riding the waves

a shot from last friday at wilmette beach in illinois when i had the meet up with junko @jyokota and domenico @domenicododaro and his family. this is lake michigan, of course, the only one of the five great lakes that is entirely within the united states. the other four, lake superior, lake ontario, lake erie and lake huron, we share with them. the five great lakes make up the largest body of fresh water on Earth, accounting for one-fifth of the freshwater surface on the planet at 6 quadrillion gallons, as per livescience.com

there was quite a bit of wind and the water was a bit rough but these paddleboarders are quite happy doing what they're doing. i had my camera resting on my left hand resting on the sand and a wave almost reached the camera but we only got a bit of sprinkling on the lens.

i could've saved this for next year's half and half, couldn't i?
love the image - they look like they do a lot of paddle boarding

Great shot of these fit ladies. It must be tiring on the choppy water. One seems to be hitching a ride :-)

Never quite understood what this stand up paddling is for, but the photo is great!

It looks like a perfect day for being on the ocean

Wow, it looks more like an ocean than a lake :)

@kali66 - no, but in some instances you can on a very clear day and you need a pair of binoculars and/or unless you're at the border. everything here in america seems to be supersized. 😁

Glad no real harm done in the taking. I guess that is quite choppy for a lake. Even a really really big one. it is a great fun on the water shot.

Nice fun in the sun shot :) I really must get out and do some road tripping....camera priority road tripping not down to the house to work road tripping :)

Lake Michigan is so huge, it rivals the ocean at times. Nice shot of the action.
